The battle continues...



One of Europe’s largest motorcycle shows, Intermot, in Cologne, Germany was the setting for the launch of a third instalment of the Battle of the Kings this week – and it’s expected to be bigger than before.


By bigger, we mean more competition from more Harley® dealerships and their Custom Kings, but we also have more choice, with an option of three motorcycles from the Dark Custom™ range to use as the base model for our custom build. We’re currently deciding on whether we’ll start with an Iron 883™, Forty-Eight® or Roadster™ since all of them offer huge potential.


All three bikes hail from the renowned Sportster family, which have been motorcycling icons since 1957. It is one of the most popular Harley-Davidson model ranges for customisation and the Iron 883, Forty-Eight and Roadster present ideal blank canvases for our bike builder.


Keep an eye on here and our social channels (Facebook) to see which bike we decide on and follow our build ahead of the next public vote. The 2017 UK & Ireland winner will compete in the Europe, Middle East and Africa final at EICMA in Milan next November.


If you’re interested in creating your own individual custom bike and haven’t tried these three bikes yet, why not book a test ride and tell us which one you think makes the best base model for our build? In return for taking a test ride, you’ll be entered for your chance to win all expenses paid trip to South Africa.
